I don't get the first link.

Just saw 'The Wrestler.' I couldn't help but see a bloated Frank Lampard play the same role in a few years.

I don't get the first one either. Are you trying to tell us you guys are staunch conservative bloggers and this is all a ploy to get us to like you and then you're gonna start telling us to vote for Sarah Palin suddenly?

Once you see Michael Ian Black, you know it's going off the rails. I don't get it either, but I don't watch FNC. It seems like an attempt to counter whatever it is that Bill Maher does.

Funny you should mention that other thing, Adam, as I came across this earlier tonight. I guess you're more right than you know.

Fixed the first link.

The link in ü75's post I'm guessing is a mystery (to us... they're just pulling our content), but funny because doesn't the right hate soccer because it's "gay" or whatever?

That "net-right" link is frightening, but at least they acknowledged me (yay?), using the "Michigan" tag.

PR, the southerners, and the West Coasters all get the shaft.
